    Post Favorite Cerebral Anime

    I was going to say "thinking man's" anime, but that would be sexist in leaving out the women. So let's go with cerebral -- an anime which either makes you think or requires you to think.

    My choices:

    Ergo Proxy. Re'l is a strong, independent woman -- or so she thinks. But take away her autorev and put her outside civilization, she really is close to hopeless. She can't even do her own hair. It takes a monster and a robot to teach her about humanity. When Pino asks, "Is Pino Pino?," it's a line that can take you to so many levels. What is humanity? Is it really reserved for the human race? Think about it.

    Casshern Sins. Check out my avatar. Earth may be dominated by robotic droids, but their time is limited after Casshern kills Luna. Why does he kill her? That's what Casshern wants to know. And is Luna really dead? With all these robotic warriors, there is action, but mostly you again ponder the basics of existence and the purpose of life. Little Ringo seems to understand. She knows she is doomed, but still sees the beauty of the world.

    Grave of the Fireflies. The most depressing anime film I have ever seen, but don't let that scare you off. It really makes you ponder the cost of war. This one will not leave your mind.

    Now your turn.

    Try "Welcome to the Space Show" or "Summer Wars".

    Any anime requires you to think if you tackle this question logically, but going off your definition I'd say Ergo Proxy. It was pretty good.

    I liked Summer Wars. But I really didn't consider it cerebral, though I guess it could be if you are questioning the line between reality and the virtual world. But I think Lain, aka Serial Experiments Lain, did that a lot better, so maybe I should add that to my list. But I consider Summer Wars more of a teen adventure movie. But it was a good teen adventure movie.

    I often find myself in the minority on Ergo Proxy. I am glad someone here besides me likes it.

    Tell me about it. Where is it airing? If in Japan, I will probably have to wait a year if it ends up on Netflix streaming. More than that if not.

    Stories. A young boy. His amnesiac goddess mother. His grandfather the moon king who wants to rip out Kubo's remaining eye. A quest for mystical armor. A giant amnesiac beetle.



    Also Wolf's Rain is pretty cerebral.

    "For those who have come to power, wealth and glory not by their own strength and effort, but simply through inheritance, what right do they have to complain? The very existence of such blood-lineage dynasties is disgusting. Power is the property of one generation. It shouldn't be transferred, it should be seized."
